"Cash or credit?"
Translation:¿En efectivo o con tarjeta de crédito?
Esta es la traducción más estúpida que he visto yo trabajaba en una tienda y cuando iban a pagar la pregunta era "efectivo o crédito?" Ja
There is one thing I'd like to point out. I AM spanish (I've lived in Spain all my live) and I came here just because I was curious. This question for a test without a real teacher is a TERRIBLE choice, depending on where you live "cash or credit" would be translated differently. "(En) efectivo o (con) tarjeta (de crédito)", whichever brackets you leave or remove it would be correct, at least in Spain. You can even replace "efectivo" with "metálico" and it would still be a very common way to say that sentence in Spain. Duolingo should be more careful on this kind of issues.
I totally agree !!! Can duo make up it's mind. How can answers be accepted then later not accepted so many times like with with phrase. This does not help us learn. Also many times the hints say one thing but then it is not accepted when you write it in. WHY AND WHAT IS THE POINT ? HOW DOES IT HELP US?
Adding to the list of people feeling the english sentence they want translated needs to be clarified to "Cash or with credit card" if they want us to translate it as ¿En efectivo o con tarjeta de crédito?
Else I agree with others - literal translation is ¿Efectivo o crédito? and they're dinging us because we're apparently not mind-readers.
This is the last straw. There are other types of credit available in Spain other than a credit card. The constant wrong or obscure answers have taken all the fun out of this. I'm gone.
Why not "En efectivo o tarjeta de credito"? I never ask "Cash or with credit card", but I DO SAY "Cash or credit", which is precisely what the translation is. If this is a colloquialism in Spanish, then please state it, or give prior examples that reinforce that colloquialism. BTW, I work in retail.
Ok so i was all the way wrong I put El efectivo o la tarjeta de credito because I'm treating them simply as the nouns i saw. I wouldn't not have thought IN cash or WITH credit because no one says that lol. No one says The cash or The credit either but i thought this was one of those tricky spanish rules lol
